I had my E-PL5 modified by LifePixel to enhance its sensitivity to deep red, so I can i capture images of emission nebulae through my telescope. In the 'full spectrum' mod, the UV-IR filter on the sensor in conventional digital cameras is removed and replaced with clear glass. Because lenses are not designed to focus IR and UV light at the same plane as visible light, a filter must be used to avoid image blurring, but now I can choose the wavelengths of light I want to capture, from IR through visible to UV, by using the appropriate filter. When the modded camera arrived I had to try it immediately, so I attached the 17mm f/1.8 lens with the IR-pass filter I bought for astrophotography, and snapped some shots from my balcony in Nevada City Cohousing. IR is recorded in the red channel, so the original pic is monotone in red. I converted it to B&W by desaturating colors in Lightroom. Green leaves emit a lot of IR, so they appear white: I also bought a UV-IR filter that passes visible light, including deeper reds than the usual in-camera filter so the camera will pick up the hydrogen-alpha radiation from emission nebulae. That filter allows the camera to be used for conventional photography too, with an adjustment of color balance. That would be a normal photo, so I haven't tried it for normal photography. I've ordered a UV-pass filter for astrophotography, too. When it arrives I plan to try it for flower photography with the modded E-PL5 as well, because flowers often show patterns that guide bees to the good stuff, which are not visible to the human eye. The sky looks darker in the IR image than it is to the eye, in part because IR passes through atmospheric haze, 'clearing' the sky. The night sky in my location has been too cloudy or hazy for astrophotography for a while, but we're supposed to see clearing next week, so I'll try for some extended-red astrophotos then. A brief look at recent threads did not reveal a thread for IR photos. If you have some, please use this thread to show them to us!
